Cal State Partners with EPA to Offer Environmental Internships

cswrpiKnow a Cal State student in need of a great internship? The Cal State Water Resources and Policy Institute (WRPI) has a great program to help connect students with great EPA internships in science, communication, research and in other practice areas…

The California State University (CSU) entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 9 (EPA) to establish cooperation between the two entities, including encouraging students to participate in the environmental fields of study and to help EPA attract a workforce as diverse as the public it serves. Implementation of the MOU activities will promote equal opportunity in EPA’s workforce, contribute to CSU’s capacity to provide high-quality education particularly in various environmentally related fields of study, and encourage the participation of CSU students and faculty in EPA’s programs. CSU’s Water Resources and Policy Initiatives (WRPI) is administering the Program.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • enrolled at a CSU campus at least half time while completing internship
  • minimum GPA of 2.5 (unless the EPA project requires a higher GPA)
  • enrolled in an internship course at a CSU campus during the quarter of your internship
